The new baseball season is well on the way and it is already proving to be a as announced, unbridled entertainment. As a baseball fan, you are going to love these sports games we offer, and you should be excited, thrilled, because there is so much to look forward to this season. Most teams have recovered projected stars and potential key men lost tk injury last season and with renewed hope of fans making it to the stands sometime in the season, it is one of the most anticipated seasons in MLB history.

The Dodgers started the season with a loss to the Rockies before winning five straight and then slumping to the As in the last game of their triple header. That said, the Dodgers look good, and their new faces appear to be blending in nicely, apart from a controversial moment against the Athletics when pitcher, Trevor Bauer’s balls were taken to the back for inspection mid-game. It will be a back and forth season between Bauer and the league, as LA’s new man has openly decried the league’s new rules on foreign substance use and ball testing. Keep your eye on this space and pitching this season. The Dodgers face Washington three times, before going back to take revenge on the Rockies.

The league is keen on tightening the screws on teams’ unspoken rules and hacks, which in all honesty are tantamount to cheating. No team has become more synonymous with that than The Astros. The team was booed in their games against the Los Angeles Angels, and every win against them felt like some sort of punishment. The team would manage to split the series with the Angels, taking their record this season to 5-1. They face the Athletics again in a triple header, before welcoming the Detroit Tigers.

The Angels lost a game to both the Astros and the White Sox, but have looked exciting so far. Shohei Ohtani has played a big part in the early season joy for Angels fans, wowing with his pitching and swing. He is still to make a reappearance after taking a knock against the White Sox, but is likely to return against the Blue Jays.

After losing their opening game in the series against the Cardinals, the Cincinnati Reds have looked like a team in the mission, and are the undisputed the top team of the season so far. It is not just about winning, but how they do it that has got them on every lip. A three-game series against the Diamondbacks will give more insight into how much they mean business this season.

With all their amassed star power, the San Diego Padres were meant to be the showstoppers this season, but a 4-3 record, winning only one in their last four, has left a sour taste in the mouth of fans. Tatis Jr is out for at least 10 days after a muscle injury, and it will be interesting to see how they fare against the Rangers and Pirates.
